Civil and transportation engineers must often estimate the future traffic flow on roads and bridges to plan for maintenance or possible future expansion. The following data gives the number of vehicles (in millions) crossing a bridge each year for 10 years. Fit a cubic polynomial to the data and use the fit to estimate the flow in year 2000. Year 1990 1991 1992 1993 1994 Vehicle flow (millions) 2.1 3.4 4.5 5.3 6.2 Year 1990 1991 1992 1993 1994 Vehicle flow (millions) 6.6 6.8 7 7.4 7.8
Determine the value of the integral I = Z 1 0 x p 1−x 2 dx by composite trapezoidal rule with 3 and 5 ordinates. Improve the result by using extrapolation technique.

An experiment to compare the lifespan of four different brands of spark plug was carried out. Five spark plugs of each brand were used, and the number of miles used until failure as an indicator of lifespan was Following is part of the statistical results for a one-way ANOVA. ANOVA Table Source of variation Sum of squares df Mean square error F-value Treatments 176.5 B E G Error A C F Total 236.0 D Find the missing values for A, B, C and D in the ANOVA table. Perform the ANOVA test to check for significant differences among the population means of the four different brands of spark plugs. Use a 0.05 significance level to conduct the test. The test should include the following steps: a. State the null hypothesis and alternative hypothesis. b. Specify the significance level and rejection region. c. Determine the value of test statistic F. [ d. Determine test decision regarding the null hypothesis. e. State your conclusion
